Ingredients

  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. grated Parmesan
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 (15–16 oz.) pkgs. refrigerated pizza dough, at room temp.
  • 12 frozen Italian-style bite-size meatballs
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 12 slices pepperoni
  • 1 cup pizza sauce
  • Fresh basil sprig (optional)

Instructions

• Heat oven to 400°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray. Place 5” diameter bowl upside down in center. In small bowl, whisk together olive oil, Parmesan, garlic powder and seasoning until combined; reserve.

• Divide dough into 12 equal portions. Form one portion of dough into round, then slightly flatten. Place one meatball in center, then pull edges up over filling. Using moist fingers, press ends together to seal dough around meatball. Repeat with remaining dough pieces and meatballs. Place dough balls around bowl, sides touching each other. Brush all over with oil mixture; remove bowl.

• Bake until dough is baked through and crust is golden brown, about 25 min. Sprinkle with mozzarella and top with pepperoni. Bake until cheese is melted and pepperoni starts to brown, about 5 min. Meanwhile, in small pot over medium heat, cook pizza sauce until heated through, about 5 min. Transfer sauce to small bowl; place in center of pizza ring. If desired, garnish with basil. Serve immediately.
